|Jack Benny Program: Season 5, Episode 5: The Life of Jack Benny|
(From TV.com) Rochester is typing up the script for next week's show: Jack Benny's life story. The Sportsmen Quartet sing "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby." Jack begins auditioning actors for the various parts in his saga. He hires a gorgeous young woman to play his first love, and his real first girlfriend to be his mother. He passes on the first young man who's auditioning to play himself as a child, instead casting the pushy little boy who is acting as the kid's agent.

|New World Notes 165 - Peasant of the Dawn|
30-minute weekly radio program for May 3, 2011. Very nice *audiocollage* by Virtual Renderings, slightly condensed by me. It's a meditation on class warfare, the ruling elite's dislike of democracy, American exceptionalism, and the prescience of George Orwell, among other themes. Voices heard belong to Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Noam Chomsky, historian Morris Berman, and Ken Nordine (himself a master of *audiocollage*), among others worth hearing...

|The Horn Blows at Midnight on Omnibus|
In 1945, Jack Benny starred in his last major motion picture, "The Horn Blows at Midnight," as a band member who dreams he's an angel sent to destroy the Earth. The film did respectable business but wasn't an overwhelming success (doubtlessly due to the timing, coming at the end of WW2) and Benny soon began joking about what a dismal failure the film was... which quickly became a running gag on his TV and radio shows, leading people to believe the movie actually was an epic bomb.In 1949, the f...
